As US and NATO prepare to leave Afghanistan in 2014, the Afghans will be responsible for security. "To equip the Afghan police, UNESCO launched a literacy program in 2011, with support from Japan. The program trained 300 facilitators who train thousands of officers.

informative and relevant material, UNESCO publishes a monthly newspaper,
Khedmat (which means 'service' in the Pashto and Dari languages)," notes the UNESCO education page.
